Just about everybody has spoken out either for our against Shawn Thornton's 15-game suspension by now.

The Bruins organization feels it's a bit harsh, and Thornton himself appealed the suspension on Monday.

Gary Tanguay also thinks 15 games is too much. He was joined on Sports Tonight with Steve Buckley, who has a different opinion.

"I thought it was fine," Buckley said. "If you want to bring in the Neal suspension and say Thornton got this, Neal got that, that's a separate discussion. If you look at what Thornton did in and of itself - obligatory he's a nice guy, I get it - if you look at what he did and how he did it you need to send out some kind of message."

The guys also talk about Brad Marchand's antics in Vancouver and if his "punk" ways to earn himself a ticket out of town.

But we want to hear from you: Do you feel Thornton's 15-game suspension is fair? Let us know in the comments section.
